China energy storage net news: according to the daily mail reported that German scientist invented the use solar energy to recharge the phone translucent colored lenses, lens of organic solar cells have a microprocessor and two power monitor, display the sun light intensity and environment temperature, the lens can even use solar energy to charge their phone.The researchers say the technology may lay the groundwork for further solar applications, such as embedding organic solar cells in Windows or glass skylights.
Organic solar cells can be powered by solar power, which is characterized by transparency, light weight, and can be made into different colors and shapes.It can replace traditional heavier and harder silicon solar cells in a wider range of fields.
Researchers at the karlsruhe institute of technology in Germany used the sunglasses as a sample to show the application of organic solar cells.The college of optical technology organic photovoltaics team leader ˙ Bronx Dr. Alexander said: "we use the solar energy technology to fill the gaps in other solar technologies."The smart solar glasses can be self negative energy, so as to measure and display the intensity of sunlight and temperature, the indoor illumination conditions as low as 500 lux (general office or living environment illumination) work as well.Even in indoor, the two lenses can also generate 200 gigawatts of electricity, respectively, it is enough to recharge, such as hearing AIDS or a pedometer, lens thickness is 1.6 mm, weight is 6 g, there is a difference and ordinary lens, therefore also has commercial value.The microprocessors and displays are embedded in the temples of the glasses, showing the light intensity and ambient ambient temperature in a histogram.
An assist in developing solar glasses doctoral students Dominic ˙ Randall said: "our research and development of solar glasses is to show that organic solar cells in photovoltaic cells can application areas of traditional works."It is mechanically flexible, and can be tailored to different specific requirements for color, transparency, shape and size, and the organic solar cells are getting a lot of attention.
